This plasmid was called pLKO-Tet-On in the original publication.  The name was changed to clarify that this plasmid does not contain and is not related to the trademarked Tet-On(R) system sold by Clontech.  No other changes were made.  Clontech does not support or recommend this product.  

Please look at the manual associated with this plasmid.
